Speed Trumps Speed?

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
The Minnesota Wild is a fast team. This is a good thing especially because they're neither a big team, nor a very physical team. It is also a good thing because they reside in the Western Conference which is rife with big, physical teams that can also skate. This has worked for the Wild if for no other reason than it has [i]had[/i] to work. Worked, that is, until...
That quote comes from another obvious thug, Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows. It was his response to the fierce slash he made on the back of Dallas Stars forward Brendan Morrow's knee, in the final minutes of game 6. The slash caused a twinge in a nerve and caused Morrow to limp off the ice and miss the rest of the game. I'm just curious why Burrows would be so op...

Congratulations Mr.Bettman

Posted Monday | Comments 7
There have been few occasions over the last decade or so where Gary Bettman was the envy of the other major sports league's commissioners. This is one of them. League revenues are surging, players are being paid well and there is parity like we've rarely seen before. But most importantly there are no Barry Bonds, Mike Vicks or Tim Donaghys. Mr.Bettman doesn...

Svitov to Play in Russia

Posted Monday | Comments 2
Last Friday the Bluejackets got a big surprise. Alexander Svitov had signed an 3 year deal with Avangard Omsk of the RSL. This was after he inked a 2 year extension with the Bluejackets in July. This really throws a wrench into Hitchcock's plans for the team this year. Up until Hitchcock took over, Svitov never really reached his viewed potential. Once Hitch took over th...
This will be my 3rd attempt to post this blog???? Maybe I am a complete incompetent boob, but it shouldn't be this hard. Anyway, before everyone gets all hyped up and lights their posse torches, please let me say that I have accepted this fact and am completely at ease about it. In many respects, I am very happy about it. There are a lot of positives to having a limite...

PARITY

Posted Friday | Comments 3
That one word is all that's needed tonight. The NHL wanted it. The NHL is closer than ever of getting it. The NFL says it has it. Then it has the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts. Where do they fit under parity? MLB says it has it. Then there's the Boston Red Sox. NBA says it has it. Yet there's dynasty teams like the San Antonio Spurs. It's ...

In the latest reach for getting someone else suspended, Flyer fans lead by one Tim P accuse Max Afinogenov of 1.) slew footing and 2.) kicking Scott Upshall. If you are an objective hockey fan, you can ...

Ovechkin is the MVP

Posted Thursday | Comments 5
Sometimes it takes a loss to understand how important a player is to his team. The Capitals lost 5-0 to the Blackhawks last night. In a game where the Capitals failed to score, it was more apparent than ever how Alexander Ovechkin is the league MVP. A week or so ago, Ek posted the "Who Would You Build Your Team Around" blog. The options...Sidney Crosby or Alexander...
Wow! That was a big sigh of relief you heard from every other team in the league when the Wings lost out in the Fabian Brunnstrom sweepstakes. No other team wants the Wings to have any more weapons. But now this. The Wings don't sign a prospect, they sign a [i]bona fide[/i] star. And how did they do THAT under the radar? [b]Ville Leino[/b], a forward, and this ...
Yesterday/Early Today, all off us were caught up with the actual game held in real (really long) time. So it is understandable that many of you who participate in fantasy leagues might have missed Monday's good news: The U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari for [i]Major League Baseball Advanced Media v. CBC Distribution and Marketing[/i], 07-1099. And even though ...

Ray Emery's KHL Debut

Posted Tuesday | Comments 5
This morning I managed to watch Ray Emery's KHL debut for Atlant Mytishchi vs. Spartak Moscow. Emery's Atlant lost 6-5 in overtime with the winning goal scored by Stefan Ruzhichka on the power play. Emery looked a little shaky, he let in a goal from the point with no one standing in front of him and was beaten on a break-away by a tied up forward whose shot seemed to su...
Well I noticed Ek the other day had the top five and five worst teams in the off-season out , and i decided to elaborate on it by creating in my eyes the top 30 . So from first to last here it is. Remember this is not who has the better team , but rather who has improved signifigantly. [b]1)[b]Edmonton[/b]-Added another further scoring threat in Cole , cont' developm...
I began thinking of this topic after seeing a topic on a hockey forum the other day. In the past few seasons the hockey world has seen the emergence of low level (self proclaimed A leagues). Many criticize theses leagues as nothing more than hyped up beer leagues, but in fact the level of play isn't that bad. Many players have college background, some of the top ACHA DI l...
While ago I wrote a blog on saving the Preds, this is the part 2 of the Series on saving the NHL. Today's Story is on saving the Islanders in the NHL. Please excuse my writing skills by no means am I a good writer, I just say how I feel now on with the Blog. The Flames Blog will later in the Week. Flamestr [b]Introduction[/b] First of all, let me apologize...
As a small time blogger, I often hear what is wrong with the League and what fans want to do fix it. What do you think was the biggest complaint I heard? Out of all the dangers in the League, people had the most problems is with the inconsistency of the refereeing. The biggest problem that the fans are having with the refs how can one play earn a penalty one game and n...
THN recently came out with theirs , so I thought I would do my own as well . Except that sinne I lack telepathic ability , I will give a range as to where I think a team can land. From their highest to their lowest. So lets' get the ball rolling. . Atlanta Thrashers 6th-15th The Thrashers seem to be rallying a bit. Bringing in support for lone super star Ilya Kova...
[url]http://s1.zetaboards.com/NHSL/index/[/url] See Below So here's something that really gets to me.. Yea I’m not liking what Heatley’s doing, but what was management thinking when they gave him the “A”, permanently?! I remember watching the first or second game since he'd been promoted; with that fancy letter on his jersey he started it off with an undiscipli...

My vision for the NHL

Posted Thursday | Comments 2
So that I can stop hearing complaints about my owner's bias, I need to set the record straight. I am not biased for the owners: I'm biased for this version of the game. Before that, let me take you through a little of my own history. In the early 1990s, we used to play League Sim which was a program based on Wayne Gretzky's Hockey (an old hockey game for the compute...

A couple random looks at the Atlantic. [b]1) Toronto takes first in the Atlantic[/b] Really in truth why can't they? They were only eight points out last season and no one has gotten significantly better. If anything the other teams ahead of them have regressed. Of those ahead: Boston looks rudderless, Ottawa lost Methot who they looked terrible without last year and M...
